" with Mjolnir in hand Magni should prove just cause, but with heavy heart he carries the old ways now lost."
This is Dan Andrews character Magni Thorson who from what I gather lives in a post apocalyptic future and is doing whatever it is he does. I like the desigh so I did a small paint of it, tried to keep things simple colour wise and gave him a little expression for Brian.

From out of the shadow, or better yet out of the shade comes Shade. Shade is a beloved character of the studio Aurenya, a studio I worked at long ago. Shade was a demo reel character of Julio's, a animator at Aurenya, we use to always bug him about the character, it's truly hard to explain sort of a had to be there kind of thing. So this is just a drink and draw sketch that I scanned in to colour over in photoshop, nothing really different than the usual and very much lacking any expression , hey Brian. But I don't think Shade is a very expressive guy, perhaps he will learn.

Roy in the Clouds is a animated concept Caleb Hystad and I came up with some years ago. Roy is the orange fellow with the high belt, he's a simpleton who for the most part enjoys life to the fullest, he may also be quite sensitive at times. On the couch is Roy's roommate, a mute who is assumed to be named Phil cause it's written upon him. I did this colour concept recently to revisit the idea.

This digital paint was based on a girl I saw at a pub one day a while back, I did a small fast sketch of her then a couple weeks later coloured it. I don't think I captured her likeness at all but I suppose I wasn't really going for that, her scarf just caught my eye.

Sketched this after seeing that Mario short by the people who do family guy, then decided to paint it up in photoshop weeee. So I figure in the world of Mario, Mario himself is the scariest thing out there running around smashing everything destroying those bricks that I assume the turtle guys make or the little mushrooms, stealing the turtle guys shells and all thier gold coins. But in the end I guess it's thier own faults for being subjects of Bowser who loves to kidnapped princesess. As far as painting this goes I'm really into flat areas of color and trying to fade parts of characters into the background, I've been looking at a lot of Manet's paintings and going from there.

Chad and Je Suis, is more of a studio inside joke than an anything else, but I believe it could be hilarious for anyone given some development. So Chad is just Chad from our studio with his punk rock nothing for nobody attitude and Je Suis is a Monkey friend, sidekick, pet kinda thing. The setting is a post apocalytic world like road warrior but with maybe more dangers than you thought imagineable. Now they stumble onto a terryfying electicfying journey where Chad learns that it just maybe might be worthwhile to do something for somebody.

My second onesheet Johnny's Dream woooooo mysterious........ or not. Here's the Synopsis. Beatrice follows her brother into a dream world that allows you to forget who you are and begin anew. Beatrice being the smart girl that she is desperatly searches for her brother to convince him of the true reality before becoming lost in her own dreams. Obviously needs some work. So with all that in mind I composed the sheet to transition from the familiar to something else being ummm castle fantasy land I guess, oh well. On to something else.

I did up three onesheets which are from my understanding a quick pitch, try to catch the eye of someone who would be interested in developing the idea further or at least hear you pitch the idea with words from your mouth or in my case words from Colin Curwens mouth. Anyways the first sheet here is A Quest For Magic it would be an action adventure fantasy type thing focusing on the awesome abilities of the four main characters, which is why I composed the sheet with the portraits of them on the side, they are cliché characters but I wanted to play with that to get an some what over the top fantasy thing as humor. The synopsis so far is this. Magic has vanished, an Empire dependent upon it is thrown into panic and such. Those Noble enough Daring enough , to cross the OCEANS OF SALT, the SANDS OF HATE, the FOREST OF TERRIBLE DEPRESSION and beyond will undertake the A QUEST FOR MAGIC.
